No secret here–sleep is a treasured thing these days. I do my best to nap on my days off, but it still doesn’t ever “catch me up” from the continued pattern of broken up sleep that befalls me as a new mom. I am lucky to get in a stretch of 5 or 6 hours of sleep at one time. Most nights, sleep comes in 3 to 4 hour doses. It could be much worse, I know. (and it was right after Drake was first born) I’ve somewhat gotten used to the broken up sleep pattern, but that doesn’t make it any easier to keep pep in my step throughout the work day.
I know it’s not the healthiest choice in the universe, but Diet Coke–in just about any variety–is my guilty pleasure go-to pick-me-up. I told Floyd that I would really love to give it up–but gosh darn it’s so hard, especially now. That caffeine kick helps get me through some days when I feel like I could easily doze off! Tea is good, too, but it’s just not the same without bubbles! And drinking Chai has added calories. So what’s a girl to do? I’ll just keep piping my diet drinks and try to not over-do it. Maybe when Drake’s sleep patterns get more in check as he gets older, I might have more success at weaning myself off the diet drinks. For now–oh Diet Coke, you are such sweet relief.
